So it’s the end 2010, which means it’s time to think about what we accomplished, what we are proud of, what we wish we could have done better, what we didn’t do, etc. If I look back on my year, I will say it was a pretty good year all around, so since this is my personal section (which doesn’t get updated enough), I’ll let you all in on some personal things. So here goes …
It was my first full year being a mom. It was good, fun, challenging, full of laughs and some tears. It is amazing to think how much my son has grown up and changed, and he’s still not even 3.
I ran over 1400 miles. I ran two marathons, one half marathon, three triathlons, and a couple 10k races. I didn’t bike or swim as much as I wanted, but that’s because of the mom stuff that took priority.
I really didn’t take any vacation, except some long weekend trips away, including five days in Vermont for one of my marathons. That’s gonna have to change next year.
We had our best year ever in practice. That is cool. Looking at our year end statistics, 2010 was the busiest year we have ever had, the opportunity to help more and more people in our community. The addition of Dr. Stiles helped us with that growth, as she was a part time Doctor to our team and helped us out in so many ways. 2011 will bring new changes for all of us, as we are bringing on a new full time Doctor so we can continue to grow and help even more people in our community.
So what is in store for 2011? Well Dr. Katie is joining us in January, and we are really looking forward to that. The addition of a full time person will allow for so much more in our office and we have some great things planned. On a personal note, I have a half marathon in February, a marathon in April, and who knows what after that. I hope to go on vacation somewhere, which will have to become more than just a “hope” if it is going to happen. I plan to post on this blog much more often. And I plan to do so much more.
While a New Year is really just another day (and year), it is also a time to make changes. Remember that change is a conscious choice, and requires dedication and commitment if you really want something to happen. Keep in mind that nothing happens overnight (well, no real long lasting change that is). Be grateful, learn from others, speak less & listen more, and raise your standards. There are not many things that feel better than accomplishing something that was challenging. Strive to make 2011 your best year ever!
